Glittering God

Ganesha Chaturthi is the Hindu festival celebrated on the birthday (rebirth) of Lord Ganesha, the son of Shiva and Parvati. We have a simple ceremony at home, where we worship the god by decorating his altar and offering him his favourite food “Modak” as Prasad Prasad (food offering to deity) is presented on a Banana leaf. Prasad consists of Modaks, rice dumplings filled with coconut, jaggery and dry fruits.  Kheer and Puri is also important part of prasad. Potato subji and Lentils served on rice with dollop of butter and basil leaf completes the menu.
